First image arrives from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim

The finished movie's still a while away yet, but the first image from Guillermo del Toro's next movie, Pacific Rim, is here...

We don't yet know an awful lot about Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, other than that it has a slightly unfortunate title, and it's got giant robots in it. And as this first image to arrive from the set of the movie reminds us, it's got Idris Elba in it, too. He's looking rather fetching in his metal outfit, and looks for all the world like a chum of Tony Stark.

Is this what the film's characters have to wear while they pilot their giant robots? If so, we may be in for a big-budget version of the 90s straight-to-video classic, Robot Jox. Now wouldn't that be something?

Pacific Rim's out on the 12th July 2013.
